On my turn I launch a ship using 6 food to space 6(first position). Starbuck has a prepared ship already and on his turn needs to launch a ship. I may be missing something obvious but, which position would he launch to? There is no 6+1 position.

Just played this yesterday. Here is how I would handle this.

Assuming you launched before Starbuck, he would move to 1st position on space 6 and you would be bumped to 2nd on space 6 position.

Yes there is no spot 7, and I don't think it's fair to move you closer to shore to maintain the +1 upon launching constraint.

Cheers,

Kyle A.

I play that if he can't launch to 6+1, he doesn't launch at all.
It would be like in a multi player game, if you want to launch to the 4 space, but it is full, you can either launch to the 3, collect more food and launch to the 5, or just wait to launch to the 4.
Starbuck won't go closer, he can't go further, so he waits until he lands on another launch action.
